Wednesday 6th October 2010 - "Men at Work"

Spent a very pleasant morning on various small tasks, one of which was to take a trip up to Cotswold  Building Supplies in Broadway for some  lime cement. What a fairyland this is for the DIYer or professional. They seem to have everything that you could want. Not only that, they are so knowledgeable and helpful!
I can also report on platform wall progress from our correspondent on the front line, Peter H:

"We had a very good day brick and block wise. Ron continued with the corbelling and Ray & I managed to finish the 4 base courses for the next 50 ft of platform. Ray had a dental appointment in the afternoon so I carried on with the block laying. I am now an official student at the Brislin academy of brick/block laying! Really enjoyed it, very rewarding.Ron has asked me to make a stacking frame to go in the container for the planks purchased today - should keep it a bit tidier. Will have a go at it on Saturday."

Great to see Progress -- Any news on proposed track or signaling as Broadway Signal box seems to have gone quiet.

Hello - There is a track plan in existance but there is some debate about the type of signal box we require and its positioning. I will post some info. on the Blog when I find out. Thanks for your enquiry.

Is the old Exminster Signal box no longer for Broadway then? What will you do with it if it isn't used there?

I don't think the Exminster Box has been totally discounted! As ever there are different schools of thought about how such a large box can be made to fit aesthetically into the lanscape at Broadway.
